ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DEADLINE IS TBD. Abstracts can be submitted from any computer with Internet access on- or off-campus. All abstracts must be submitted online. Acceptable research types include basic science, clinical, case reports/series*, quality improvement, and educational research .
The number of presentations the forum is able to accommodate is limited. We will make every effort to accommodate as many submissions as possible; however, there is a chance that some presentations will not be accepted for presentation due to this limitation. Some presenters may be given the opportunity to present in a different format (oral or poster) than requested.
All accepted abstracts, both oral and poster**, will be judged by a panel of volunteer faculty members.
Abstract Formatting Requirements:
Purpose/Introduction: Include the rationale for the study, research question and objectives of the study.
Methods/Materials: Include a brief description of the research design, techniques, models of inquiry and sources of data.
Results: Summarize quantitative/qualitative data or outcomes, including any results which are statistically significant.
Conclusions: Include a brief interpretation of the results and implications for your field of study.
If you're feeling overwhelmed, not quite sure where to start, and/or just need a little writing assistance, consider reaching out to The Writing Center on campus. They will provide free, individualized, one-on-one feedback on your written work. 30- or 60-minute consultations are available.
